Author Biography

Andrea Kibler Maxwell, University of Pittsburgh

Andrea Kibler Maxwell is a PhD candidate in the History of Art and Architecture Department at the University of Pittsburgh.  Before joining the department at Pitt, she earned her MA in art history from Kent State University and her BA at Mary Baldwin College.  Her research focuses on fifteenth- and sixteenth-century painting and religious discourse in Lombardy and the Veneto region and seeks to reunite the intense local history of Northern Italy with its geographical location during the theological debates of the reformations.  Her dissertation explores the visual exegesis and discourse regarding anti-Semitism, Protestant heretics, and witches, as well as interrogates what it meant for art in this period to be considered “modern.”
